Creating proofs, mockups or visuals for clients can be hard when you don’t get provided with vector artwork from the offset. Sometimes sales staff will want to approach a prospect with a brochure of options, before they have even done any business with your company. On the other hand clients often send in poor quality jpg/png/gif/bmp files for use as artwork.
Either that or they will place one of the aforementioned formats into a PDF/AI/EPS file. It can often hurt or hamper orders when you are always throwing artwork back to potential and current customers because the quality is not good enough for print. Well over the years I have become an expert in finding logos and vector artwork for orders on the internet.

There are various pieces of software that can resize your images on mass. None work with quite the same finesse as photoshop though.
